Niove (Staudtia kamerunensis) is a straight grained, fine textured wood containing color ranging from orangy-yellow to brown with darker veins and clearly demarcated sapwood. Machines, turns, and finishes well. Glue-up may be somewhat difficult because the surface of the wood may be oily, so proper wood preparation is necessary. Niove is excellent for furniture, turning projects, jewelry, and so much more.

Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
